Wednesday's Championship predictions including Norwich City vs. Brentford

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Wednesday's Championship fixtures, including Norwich City vs. Brentford.

Norwich City and Brentford square off on Wednesday evening as the top two clubs in the Championship look to move a step closer to Premier League promotion.

The home side currently hold a seven-point advantage courtesy of winning five games in a row, capitalising on a brief lull in form from the Bees.

We say: Norwich City 1-1 Brentford

While both teams will want all three points on Wednesday night, Norwich know that they will still benefit from a share of the spoils. With that in mind, we expect the home side to take fewer risks, potentially settling for a point if Brentford push forward during the closing stages.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Queens Park Rangers host Barnsley in the Championship on Wednesday evening, hoping to win their fourth successive league match on home soil for the first time since September 2017.

Meanwhile, the Tykes are looking to claim their sixth consecutive league victory for the first time since February 2016 and move into the playoffs.

We say: Queens Park Rangers 1-2 Barnsley

Both sides have improved since the turn of the year and are now looking towards the right end of the table, with hopes of finishing the season strongly.

QPR have won each of their last three home matches in the league, all against teams above them in the table, but face one of the Championship's most in-form outfits in Barnsley, who have a good record against the Hoops.

A close encounter is to be expected at Loftus Road, but the rampant form of the visitors should give them the edge to seal a narrow victory on Wednesday night.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Watford vs. Wycombe (Wednesday, 7.00pm)

Watford welcome Wycombe Wanderers to Vicarage Road looking to get back on track in the Championship promotion race after defeat to Bournemouth.

Meanwhile, the visitors head into Wednesday evening's fixture sitting 11 points adrift of safety after losing out against leaders Norwich City.

We say: Watford 2-0 Wycombe Wanderers

Having had 24 hours less recovery time, Wycombe are at a disadvantage ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. While we expect a committed display from the visitors, a strong start for the Hornets could provide them with a comfortable night.

Our tipster partners are predicting a home win.

Bristol City vs. Bournemouth (Wednesday, 7.45pm)

Nigel Pearson will take charge of his first home game as manager of Bristol City when they host Bournemouth on Wednesday evening, with the Robins looking to claim their third successive Championship victory.

The Cherries, meanwhile, travel to Ashton Gate after failing to win any of their last four away matches in the league.

We say: Bristol City 1-1 Bournemouth

A new manager bounce at Bristol City is already in full swing and the Robins will fancy their chances of claiming another three points against an inconsistent Bournemouth outfit.

However, the visitors have already defeated the hosts earlier this campaign and are likely to make it difficult for them on Wednesday evening.

Both sides will be looking to build on victories last weekend, but a tight encounter is expected which could see a score draw played out at Ashton Gate.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.

Two Championship teams in desperate need of three points will lock horns at Hillsborough this week, as Sheffield Wednesday host Rotherham United in a crucial relegation battle.

The Owls have lost their last four league matches while the Millers have lost their last five, although they currently sit one place above Wednesday, who now have a new head coach at the helm.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 2-1 Rotherham United

A turnaround in form is desperately needed for both sides who are at risk of moving further adrift at the bottom if their miserable runs of form continue.

With Darren Moore hoping to put his stamp on his new Sheffield Wednesday squad immediately, we feel a manager bounce could be on the cards, with the hosts to edge out Rotherham at Hillsborough.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Stoke vs. Swansea (Wednesday, 8.15pm)

Promotion contenders Swansea City make the trip to the bet365 Stadium looking to improve on a run of just one win in three Championship fixtures.

Meanwhile, Stoke City head into the game on Wednesday evening on the back of consecutive defeats, form which has left the Potters as outsiders for a playoff spot.

We say: Stoke City 1-1 Swansea City

While both of these clubs will view this contest as one which they must not lose, a draw does not benefit either club. Taking everything into consideration, we can only see a low-scoring stalemate in the Potteries with the home side potentially finding a late equaliser.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 2.5 goals.
